Mullica Middle News

Week of January 2, 2019

Dear Mullica Middle Staff,

Welcome back!


I hope that you have had a restful and refreshing break. I was able to spend time with almost all of my favorite people over the holidays. I am currently visiting with my sister and her family in Oak Park, California. While here, we drove around the area to see firsthand the destruction wrought by the Woolsey fire. Several homes in my sister’s neighborhood were completely destroyed and the hills surrounding my niece’s elementary school burned as well. We are all thankful that they were spared the trauma of losing their home or school to the fire. We rang in 2019 with a Happy Hippie New Year’s Eve party. I have included a family photo for your enjoyment.


Spending time with my family always reminds me of how blessed I am and inspires me to strive to be a blessing to others. I look forward to working with each of you to positively impact the lives of our students.


Have a great week!

Technology Reminder

Please DO NOT send students to Mike Irwin's office under any circumstances.


Mr. Irwin's position requires him to be out of his office or on the phone much of the time. Further, all repairs and support items must be tracked through a ticket and reported to the BOE.


Mr. Irwin has kindly sent this request out several times this year.


Continued disregard of this policy will be brought to my attention immediately.
